Backlit metal letters FAQ

How to determine the right backlit metal letters size?

In our experience, there is a roughly proportional relationship between the height of the backlit metal letters and the best visible distances , generally 10 to 12 times. For example, a 10 inches height backlit metal letters can be distinguished well from a distance of about 100 inches to 120 inches.

What's the best fonts for backlit metal letters?

In fact for us, we care more about the minimum stroke width than the font. We need the minimum width of the strokes reach 10mm(0.39"), else we will have not enough space to place the LED in the letters shell, and if it is too small we even can not produce the 3D letters shell.
As long as the above requirements are met, then you can choose the fonts you need according to your personal preferences.
If you prioritize readability, then sans serif fonts that are thick like Helvetica or Arial will maximize your backlit metal letters' visibility. Many contemporary and modern backlit letters are designed to be highly visible.
If you need your letters have some special style, then you can see the scrip fonts, thin, decorative font styles, and serif-style fonts, though they might difficult to read or see from a distance, they have rich style.
